L have a Bolens 12 Hp ride on mower purchased new 1992 l have not used the mower for the last 7 years due to update to a larger mower.L'd like to have the bolens as a spare mower. What is missing from my bolens is the complete lever for height adjustment to the cutting deck.Its the piece that is located under the seat and runs across to meet both the deck adjustors. Also the selector rod and round button that you put your hand on to raise the height options Where do l get a replacement or find a part ?

Bolens is now owned by MTD. Find parts for your machine at or your local MTD/Bolens dealer

The bigger challenge you will have is getting the engine running again unless you have maintained it the past 7 years. My free advice is get the motor running and make sure the tractor still functions before you start adding accessories. Once you have driven it around the block once or twice, then get the parts you need to operate the deck. I think these parts will be a little pricy.

I say these things because of a similar experience with a International Cub I got. I spent a lot of money to get the mower running before I got the tractor running, reliably. I didnt get my fair value from my $ as a result. I then bought a geenuine Troy and have never looked back. (MTD owns the Troy brand now also.)

Good luck with your project

Cant find motor Model number on Bolens MTD 2005 Riding mower 15.5 hp I/C OHV

Per your own question that is the model # just use the 13AM762F765, There should have been a 2nd set of numbers and those would be your Serial number 9 digits followed with (000005) which is year built. I have exact same mower

I have a Troy Bilt 175 HP 500cc 7 speed riding mower. I just bought a new battery, and it still won't crank. It'll turn over like it wants to, but nothing. I put new gas with the old gas from last season...

If you didn't put fuel stabilizer in gas before letting the mower setup all winter, your gas has gunked up your carb.
You can verify this by removing the air filter and spraying starter fluid in the carb. If it cranks with the starter fluid, the carb is dirty.
Pull the carb and clean it out
